The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:17 fulfilled his word. These terrible afflictions that had come on Israel not only were divine judgments on sin, but were also precise fulfillments of prophecies given some nine hundred years before (e.g., Leviticus 26:14-39; Deuteronomy 28:15-62).
